Some Cards and a New Blog

Just wanted to post some quick cards I made for teachers.  Austin "graduates" next week from Kindergarten!  I can't believe how fast this year has flown by.  He started off the school year very shy...not really talking to anyone.  He was super good and would always listen to the teacher.  He is finishing the year with several new friends, a new attitude and he got in trouble for talking too much with friends and not listening to the teacher!  Now, I know I should be upset with him....but you have no idea how amazing that is.  He has friends and he talks!  He's always been super shy around anyone but us.  And he never really makes friends or plays with others, and that was my number one worry about the school year.  But he did great.  He made friends.  :)  So anyways....here's those cards I mentioned:



And I wanted to tell you about a new challenge blog.  



Do you have tons of stamps?  Do you use them?  Ah...but do you use them in scrapbooking pages????  I hear it all the time.  People have stamps, but they rarely use them on their layouts.  If that is the case with you then this is the place for you.  It's called Scrap and Stamp.  They will issue challenges every two weeks.  The first challenge will post on the 6th of June and will run for two weeks. They will have a fabulous sponsor that will announced when the challenge is posted.  :)  I will be there.  It is one of my personal goals to use my stamps more, especially in my scrapbooking.  Hope you will join us!  :)

If someone asked I would have said I dont have alot of stamps, but I am realizing I have more than I thought. I shy away from using them bc Im not the best stamper and I ruin the page, but I need to use them. I'll be sure to visit.

I love the apples! I know I can't believe that school will be out soon! I need to mentally prepare for more noise :)

my littlest, who is 7 now, was like your kiddo. School has been slowly but surely helping her come out of that shell and deal with social situations on a more comfortable level.

Awesome cards! I need to use my stamps more. I sometimes just get overwhelmed with everything, you know? And I'm really good about purging stuff too, but I still feel overwhelmed.

That apple cut paper is just so perfect for your school related cards! Love both of them.
